Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "Standing in the Soul" --- interview

Good Morning: Today is the last Sunday of "summer" 2007 (well, here in the US anyways). It has been a while since I read the following Hunter interview. I am just passing along the link for anybody who has not seen it or would enjoy re-reading it:

Standing in the Soul: Robert Hunter interview (by Steve Silberman)

http://arts.ucsc.edu/GDead/AGDL/silber.html

--- AshesRising

"Hey, listen, if you have not spent a certain amount of time standing in your soul, being that soul, and going where that soul goes, into the abstract realms and the poetries and the music which is the domain of that place, of course you would think that the soul didn't exist." - Hunter in above interview

When reading the excerpt you chose Ashes, I couldn't help but be reminded of this work from one of the greats.

It somehow seemed relevant.

Spirit that Form'd this Scene
by Walt Whitman

Written in Platte Cañon, Colorado

Spirit that form'd this scene,

These tumbled rock-piles grim and red,

These reckless heaven-ambitious peaks,

These gorges, turbulent-clear streams, this naked freshness,



These formless wild arrays, for reasons of their own,

I know thee, savage spirit--we have communed together,

Mine too such wild arrays, for reasons of their own;

Was't charged against my chants they had forgotten art?

To fuse within themselves its rules precise and delicatesse?

The lyrist's measur'd beat, the wrought-out temple's

grace--column and polish'd arch forgot?

But thou that revelest here--spirit that form'd this scene,

They have remember'd thee.

Stealz: Thank you --- I must admit as a follower of Coleridge I haven't spent much time checking out Walt so thank you for dropping this on my soul. I know you know the following dude who has taken lots of crap throughout his career (a master of illusion in my opinion -- brilliant decision by him).

How-'bout-them-Coltzzzz!!! What's the deal with Adam V.(?) --- a new Eve in his life maybe(?)!!

EVERY GRAIN OF SAND
by Bob Dylan

In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need
When the pool of tears beneath my feet flood every newborn seed
There's a dyin' voice within me reaching out somewhere,
Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair.

Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake,
Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break.
In the fury of the moment I can see the Master's hand
In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand.

Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear,
Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good cheer.
The sun beat down upon the steps of time to light the way
To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay.

I gaze into the doorway of temptation's angry flame
And every time I pass that way I always hear my name.
Then onward in my journey I come to understand
That every hair is numbered like every grain of sand.

I have gone from rags to riches in the sorrow of the night
In the violence of a summer's dream, in the chill of a wintry light,
In the bitter dance of loneliness fading into space,
In the broken mirror of innocence on each forgotten face.

I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea
Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.
I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man
Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.
[© 1981 Special Rider Music}

Ahhhh... Mr. Zimmerman knew/knows how to manipulate language, no?

Ahhhh... the Colts know how to manipulate opposing defenses, no?

Ahhhh... Mr. Vinatieri knows how to manipulate those uprights, no?

Stealz: Mr. V missed the uprights as I was writing that post ...hence, the inquiry. Irregardless, them Coltzzz have turned them Titanzzz into a bunch of lambzzz today.

Email has been sent. Stop harassing me. Go learn how to read and right.

Stealz: I just did a search on the correct spelling of the word, "harass." Proving once again that Life is stranger than fiction, here is what appeared:
